As it usually goes, my wife was looking on the internet for a globe and she found wooden globe made of “maple”. Thinking that I could do this she said, “Honey, can you make me one like that?” After a couple days of thinking obout how you would do this, all I can come up with is a headacke and absolutly no idea how something like this could be done. I thought of a hollow block some how made like a segmented bowl, using venier over a round mold etc, none of whick seem even remotely possible. Heres my question, has anyone out there done something like this, or has any reasonable ideas on how to do it? Just looking for ideas, thanks!

I knew that if I asked someone would have the right answer! The description on Marco’s site is great,still boggles my mind the complexity of doing something like this. I will spend some time and re-read the article and maybe I can take it in better. Thanks to all that have ansered and will answer. Neal
